Mark Wahlberg has said he hopes his kids will watch him in the new Transformers movie but they'll have to get permission from their mum first.

The 42-year-old actor has four children with his wife Rhea Durham and he told Empire magazine that he hopes they'll get to see their dad in action in the upcoming Transformers movie Age of Extinction, which co stars Dublin actor Jack Reynor.

"I hope they get to see it but it's gonna be up to their mum. She's the one who makes all of those decisions." Wahlberg said. 

He added that he prefers to spend time at home with his family and says his kids are everything to him. "I got a wife and four kids now so I prefer to go home, read my script and get prepared for the next day, these days. My kids, obviously, are everything to me."

Transformers: Age of Extinction is released on July 10.
